I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm not the most tech-savvy, and I'm having trouble with my old windows XP laptop (a Dell Latitude). It's worked fine with wireless and ethernet networking until recently.

At home, and elsewhere, I get a message telling me that I am connected to the internet (either through my wireless or through the ethernet jack): when I right-click on the connection (either Local Area Connection or my wireless card, depending on what is plugged in), the "status" says that my connection is good. Packets are sent and received (although far more are sent than received). But if I try to open a browser, I get the message saying that the browser could not connect ("Server not found" in Firefox). Similarly, windows tries to download updates, then the download quits.

At home I'm using a cable modem (Time-Warner RoadRunner is our high-speed provider) connected to an Apple Airport Express. My partner is able to connect perfectly wirelessly with her Mac with no problems, and in our previous apartment I could connect to the Airport Express with no difficulty (we had Comcast cable internet at the previous place). The password for the Airport Express hasn't changed, and I tried re-entering it with no luck. It is only since moving to a new house and new provider that I've had this problem, but the problem now occurs everywhere I go, so I'm afraid I messed something up in the search for a fix, or that the move is unconnected to the problem.

Hey all,

I have had this issue for a while now and i have attempted many things even restoring Windows back to factory settings.

My HP Windows laptop connects fine to my BT home hub 3 via wireless with no issues but the ethernet connection just recognises a local network and has no internet connectivity.

my ethernet connection just never gets an IP address and always assigns itself a 169.x.x.x address.

Originaly thinking it may be a hardware issue i booted into a Linux live cd to double check and the ethernet connection worked with no issues at all.

I have tried numeorus things to try and resolve it-

updated drivers / alternative drivers
reset TCP/IP
restored windows back to factory installation
assiginged static IP address
removed anti virus / firewall software
different router
please does anyone have any ideas of a possible solution?

many thanks in adavnce.

When I plug an ethernet wire from a router to the ethernet port on my computer, nothing seems to happen. There is no LAN option under my "network connections" either. My first guess is that I don't have the correct driver installed (or if I have one at all for the ethernet). Can anyone help me? I tried to open up the computer to see the brand of the Ethernet card but Some of the screws were stuck and I couldn't seem to open it. It is a Laptop running Windows XP by the way. I bought it at cyberpowerpc.com. Thanks very much for any help.

Looking for some help here as I'm stuck.
3 year old Toshiba laptop (Satellite P100). Ethernet and wireless both worked fine with XP. Since upgrading to Windows 7, my wireless is fine, but I can't connect to the internet via Ethernet. Other computers in the house are connected to my router (linksys WRT54GL) and work fine. I've set up an IP address manually (like I have on the other computers) with no luck. Automatically setting it will not work either. I'm using just TCP/IPv4 (v6 is unchecked, older router doesn;t support it). I've played with just about everything I can think of and still no luck.
The strange thing is that when I try to load a website, the data seems to trickle in for a second. For example, going to google.com, it will look like its loading, but nothing will come up. Then just the text will come up after maybe 20 seconds, but the logo (ie graphics) will not. It will just hang there and time out. Any normal webpage I visit will just sit on a blank screen then Firefox will report it's "done" at the bottom, but nothing will be displayed.

I also cannot log-on to my router, same problem, it will not load the web interface page, and will just time-out.

Under the "Network and Sharing" center everything appears to be fine. It will say I am connected to my network, and the diagnostics will not find anything wrong. Still, no internet.

Hi,
I am trying to make it so that Windows 7 will automatically prefer a wired internet connection over wireless when I connect an ethernet cable to my computer.

I was able to follow the instructions here:

How To Change The Network Adapter Priority In Windows 7 | LNN: Levy News Network

But it looks like after some period of time, Windows resets the order of preference of my connections to what it was before. Is there some fix for this issue?

Thank you

A:Windows 7 resets priority of Wireless over Ethernet Connection

What are the speeds of the wired and wireless connection? Windows should use the one with the most amount of possible bandwidth. Normally this is wired however if you are using newer wireless standards then it may prefer that.

Many thanks,

Atheros Wireless Adapter - AR5007EG & AR5007
Over the last couple of years we have been seeing a lot of problems with the above adapters, mainly concerning WPA and WPA2 encryption and mainly on windows Vista.
We have seen just a couple of issues on other windows operating system, windows XP and windows 7.

Windows XP:- A driver update has resolved the issue
Windows 7 :- No conclusive results for a fix

The wireless adapter gets an IP configuration, and shows as connected, but communication is non-existent or sporadic.

Log into the Router and disable the wireless security and see if you are now able to connect to the internet and surf OK.
Please post back a reply here, and let us know if that works or does not work.
If you post back the make and exact model of the router - we can advise how to disable the wireless security

Here are a number of possible solutions

--- 1) In Device Manager right click on the wireless adapter and "update driver."

--- 2) Download and install the latest wireless driver from your laptop manufacturer's web site support section,

If you post a reply here with the Make and EXACT model of your PC, along with the windows version you are running. we will see if we can find a link to the driver and will post a reply with the link here.

Is there such a thing as a 5 Ghz Ethernet card, or is just 5 Ghz wireless?

A:Ethernet vs. wireless

No - 2.4/5 GHZ refer to the wireless frequency.

Ethernet comes in two speeds mostly - older 100 Mb/s (100 megabits) or more modern 1000 Mb/s (1 Gigabit). Of course, these are usually much faster than internet speeds even for slower 100 Mb/s unless you have amazingly fast broadband.

I have a Linksys BEFW11S4 4 port wireless broadband router with 2 x wireless laptops that can see each other and share files fine. I also have a PC which is hardwired to the router. All 3 machines have an IP address from the range I configured and all 3 machines can access the internet. The problem I'm having is that my hardwired PC cannot see the workgroup I have set up so therefore it can't see the 2 wireless laptops. The 2 wireless laptops can see the hardwired PC but cannot connect to it to view the shared folders.

I have switched all firewalls off, changed lots of config in the router, reset it to default, rebuilt my hardwired PC, pulled out some hair, changed network settings all over the place but just cannot get the hardwired PC to see the workgroup.

Any suggestions anyone ! !
 

A:! ! ! ! ! Ethernet Can't See Wireless ! ! ! ! !

Well, as long as all three are getting DHCP addresses from the same network, then the router isn't to blame, so, get it configured and leave it alone.

You say you've setup a workgroup for the laptops. That desktop machine also needs to be a part of that same workgroup. Then, you need to have the same username and password combination on the three machines, and then the desktop should be able to share files with the laptops.

And you definitely want the firewalls disabled until you get things working.

So I just bought myself a new laptop (hp dv6910us) and I'm enjoying it thoroughly but I have a very basic question about what to use in terms of internet. In my apartment, I can easily connect to the internet through my ethernet connection or through the wireless. Both are smooth, fast connections. In terms of increasing the lifespan and battery-life of the computer, should I stick primarily to connecting through the ethernet or through my wireless connection? I have an Atheros AR5007 802.11 b/g WiFi adaptor and my processor is an AMD Turion X-2 TL-60 2Ghz with 3.00GB RAM. Running windows vista 32 Bit. It's a general question, not a pressing issue so answer at your leisure. Thanks.

Your internet speed is determined by your provider and the package you have, it is irrelevant how fast your connection to router is as long as it is at least a little faster than speed to the provider. So you can not change the internet speed above what provider gives you.

A:ethernet and wireless together

If I am going to use ethernet for an extended time I remove an external wireless adapter or switch an integrated wireless off. But that's to extend the life of the unused component and to save the battery if on battery. If you are using a PCI wireless card with the desktop then disabling it is probably the best you can do. But that is not going to impact your ethernet usage, so it is really your choice.

Please show the following for when you have an ethernet connection and for when it has dropped ...

Open a (black) Command Prompt window:
Hold the Windows logo key and press r; in the Run box type cmd and click on OK.

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

[Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

That probably means that they want to restrict usage to one computer per connection and do not want wireless networks set up. So, please check with the IT department before doing anything, as it's not very hard for them to detect violations.

On the assumption that you will not attempt this unless it falls within the rules, you can use a Wireless Access Point (WAP). Use encryption, preferably WPA2-PSK, AES, but at least WPA-PSK, TKIP. Use a passphrase that cannot be guessed and does not include dictionary words.

Here's something that is causing massive loss of hair.....

My PC is connected to my router with a wireless card. I also connect my PS2 to my PC using an ethernet connection (the ps2 is "modified" and I use this connection to play music and video thru the ps2 to the TV).

Everything works fine with one exception. It seems like the wireless is not getting a DNS. To obtain one, I have to disable the ethernet card, connect to my AP, then enable the card. If I lose my connect with the AP (which happens sometimes, it's on the other side of the house and the signal is a little weak), then when it reconnects I have to do the whole disable/enable thing.

It's not a huge deal, but I do like my stuff to work properly and usually things like this are not problem for me, but this one really has me wondering. Anyone have any ideas?

Here's my ipconfig /all if that helps. What's odd is the ipconfig is *exactly* the same when I can connect and when I can't. So maybe it's not a DNS issue, but something else. But I am unable to connect to any web sites until I disable and re-enable the ethernet card.

so you can watch directly on your PC without any other device - and then if you have your PC video output connected to the TV you should be able to watch on TV via PC

whats the make and model of TV

problem is I then moved and am now trying to connect to my very unhelpful flatmates O2 wireless box ii. and am back to only being able to use a cable to connect. I tried the previous address that orange gave me but im guessing it only works for them as it wont even display the page now.

i'm pretty sure the problem isnt the O2 box as my flatmate and friends have no problems connecting and i cannot connect to any wireless networks (macdonalds WiFi included lol)

Hello I have been having a problem with my ethernet work but wireless not. It basically says acquiring IP address then says limited connectivity. Im using a Dell Vostro 1520 laptop and a dlink router. Thanks for your help.
 

A:Ethernet works but wireless does not

Check.
You have no conflicting wireless managers installed try using only the Windows built in tool
Remove any unneeded wireless networks from your system.
Remove and re add your network back in, ensure all settings are configured correctly. Connect firstly with the cable and note down everything exactly. i.e. SSID, Security type, encryption type, security key.
If it still dosent work look into updating or rolling back the drivers for your wireless card.

Just a simple question. My apartment complex has installed wireless ethernet. My desktop computer has a 10/100 ethernet card installed, but I suppose I need to purchase a wireless card. What am I looking at as far as installation? Does it slide into a slot, or would somebody who's never opened his chassis before be better of getting pro help?
 

A:Wireless Ethernet Card

The ones I have seen advertized just plug into the ethernet jack on the back of the computer....I dont have one but my best guess is check with the manager of the apartment complex to ensure you get one that matches their frequency.

I network an XP box and a 98 box via wired Ethernet. Currently, a DSL connection is shared via a Zoom modem with a built-in router (5651_X4_2_2) connected to a Linksys switch (EtherFast 10/100 5-Port Workgroup Switch EZXS55W).

Just bought a laptop with a wireless card installed and want to share Internet connection and files wirelessly as already done via wired Ethenet (between XP box and a 98 box). Laptop features VISTA Home Premium.

Instead of connecting the Laptop to the switch via a patch cable (to share DSL and files), thought maybe there's a type of Ethernet to wireless adapter product that simply plugs into a port on the switch that would in turn transfer a wireless signal to the laptop. Or not?

Thanks in advance.

Im sure this is something really simple but basically with my laptop i can connect to my router wirelessly fine but when connected via an ethernet cable web pages dont load although everything states its connected???
When you attempt to load a page the load bar starts to work in the bottom right hand corner to indicate its loading but doesnt go any further than halfway and never loads?
My security programme is ESET and have attempted disabling the personal firewall in the hope this may help but no joy.
Have tried another laptop connected up via ethernet cable and that laptop worked fine loading pages problem free??
To me this seems odd but could be relatively simple as it states connection, can be prooved to work fine on another laptop so it must be something on my laptop stopping it going any further??
Could anyone please lend some much needed advice pls? would be much appraciated
thanks
Paul
 

A:Can connect wireless but not via ethernet ?

Try these simple tests using the wired connection only with the wireless disconnected.
Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands one at a time, followed by the Enter key:

NOTE: For the items below in red surrounded with < >, see comments below for the actual information content, they are value substitutions from the previous IPCONFIG command output! Do NOT type <computer_IP_address> into the command, that won't work. Also, the < and > in the text is to identify the parameters, they are also NOT used in the actual commands.

Do NOT include the <> either, they're just to identify the values for substitution.

IPCONFIG /ALL

PING <computer_IP_address>

PING <default_gateway_address>

PING <dns_servers>

PING 74.125.45.100

PING yahoo.com

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard.
Paste the results in a message here.

<computer_IP_address> - The IP Address of your computer, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above. (For Vista/Win7, the IPv4 Address)

I heard someone ask a question to a kid who knew a good amount about computers. The question was "If I have an empty ethernet port in my computer, could I configure my 360 to use my wireless internet?" The kid said yes, talked about some tool that is built in on XP and Vista. I missed the tool name, but instantly thought I would love to move my PS2 out of the basement, and into a room where it would actually get played.

So, the computer is connected to the internet through a simple USB wireless internet... stick. I was wondering if I plug my PS2 into the empty ethernet port in the back of my computer, how would I configure it to use the wireless network that is being picked up by the USB wireless card? I'm using Windows XP.

Thanks for the help.

A friend brought over a computer for me to remove a virus, after checking out the computer found that the OS was hosed. So backed up data, and put a fresh istall of XP pro on the PC, legal copy not bootlegged. Couldn't get ethernet working, figured since he did have a several nasty viruses, I'd flash the BIOS, and right 0's to the drive just to make sure no nasties were still on the machine. All said and done, reinstalled XP Pro, on an Emachine T2862. Installed drivers. Installed a pci 3Com ethernet card, with the right drivers. No ethernet, cant get an IP, tried using a good static IP didn't conect to the internet, couldn't ping the router. Plugged in a Linksys wireless usb adapter, grabbed an IP right away. Tryied plugging the ethernet in, ethernets get IP's now, unplug usb and ethernet stops working. Plugged usb back in did all of the windows updates, including hardware. Tried Ethernet with the new drivers, still doesn't work. Tried Winsock fix, tried XP bat fix. Any other suggestions, I'm stuck.
 

A:New install no ethernet, but can get wireless

What patch level of XP are you using? If this is SP2, the classic WINSOCK patch is not correct.

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2.

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ip reset reset.log

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reboot the machine.

Let's also see this:

Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.

When I bring my laptop home, I plug in a Cat5 cable and boot it up. Windows 7 then hooks up to my router with both the cable and via wireless. When I then transfer files from it, they transfer at the lower wireless speeds. If I disable the wireless on the laptop, the transfer speed increases to Cat5 levels.

Is there some way to get it to use the wired connection instead of the wireless connection without having to disable the wireless adapter in Device Manager (which means I have to re-enable it when I take the laptop on the road again)?

A:Wireless vs Cat5 ethernet

When the eithernet cable is plugged in it takes over the wireless connection and only the wired connection is used. In other words it should be happening automatically as soon as you plug in the cable.

Quite a few have tested this including myself so unless your system is somehow different than everyone else's I can't imagine why you would be having this problem.

I am lookin for some advice on a networking problem. I have a hp pc connected to the net thru an ethernet cable with a wirless router from talktalk and vista os. I have an advent laptop connected wireless to the same router. Both recieve and connect to the internet fine. My pc can find my laptop and transfer files from it thru public but my laptop does not recognise my pc nor the printer on it, any ideas as this is driving me mad.
 

A:wireless laptop and ethernet pc

You cannot see Vista PC in network on the laptop, correct.
What is the OS on the laptop?
Can you ping the PC from the laptop by IP and Name?
Do you have a password at sign on for laptop?
If Vista PC has "Password protected sharing" on, you will need to set up an account on it with laptop's User name and password.
What is the exact make/model of router?
Make/model of both compuetrs?
What firewalls are you using on both machines?
Have you tried connecting with the firewalls turned off?

I'm running a Gateway DX4720-03 (manual: https://www.manualowl.com/m/Gateway%.../Manual/148002) with Windows 7 HP 64-bit and have a Nvidia GeForce 7100/nForce 630i card and a Linksys WRT 320N router. My problem is that I always thought that this desktop computer was wirelessly connected to the internet, but I just found out that it was connected via an ethernet cable. At the moment everything is working just fine (portable computer wirelessly synched with desktop, guests can easily access my wifi, no problems with the internet, etc), except when I try to set up my wifi camera as an access point and have the computer recognize it. It was at this point, after much, much research and fiddling, I discovered that my network was set up as a Local Area Connection using an ethernet cable. In fact, the router was never listed in Network (under Network Infrastructure) until I just now selected "Add a wireless device." But, when going to Device Manager, Network adapters has MS Teredo Tunneling Adapter and NVIDIA nForce 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet and under Network Infrastructure Devices there is MS Wireless Router Module...the Linksys router doesn't show up here even though I just added it. From all this manipulation, it should be obvious that although I can very handily tweak my browser (Firefox), maintain a clean computer, solve various computer related problems - with help from the various forums, I am truly at a loss when it comes to networking and wireless set up.

Hello,

I am having real issues with both wired and wireless connections. Basically, I don?t have either all of a sudden. One day my system was fine, the next nothing. I have searched and carried out all the obvious and non-obvious ideas but have got nowhere. I have even been out and bought a new Netgear WNDA3100v2 and NIC. Everything is recognised by Windows but will not connect to the internet. Please can anyone help. I suspect and fear that it is a Windows problem and that I will have to reload the OS. (Win7 64bit)

Hello all-

I am at my family's vacation home. For several years we have stuck to using dial-up here, part of the whole isolation thing you know, but recently decided to upgrade to the most basic DSL. I set up the connection and connected the modem (Lynx L-220) to a wireless-b router (Linksys BEFW11S4) and everything was working great for about, oh, maybe an hour. It started getting unbearably slow, worse than dial-up. So I connected to the router with an ethernet cable and it's fine, most of the time. I then disconnected the ethernet and surfed wirelessly, and it was also fine. So the wireless only would work properly if I had just used the ethernet. ?????????? That's odd.......

I tried pinging a few sites on ethernet and wireless to see what happened. I opened Firefox, tried loading a page (of course it wouldn't) and then typed ping www.google.com in command prompt. It timed out a few times, then get a reply and, low and behold, the page suddenly started loading. Now I'm really confused. The internet works sometimes, the wireless works sometimes, and the ethernet works sometimes. ?????

I'm certainly planning to call tech support, but as that is a big thing to attempt, I thought I'd post here first and see if there is anyone out there who perhaps can help me.

OMG OMG OMG

Edit: I have tried pinging and loading pages only connected to the modem as well. It still doesn't work properly. I guess it's not the routers problem, maybe ... Read more
